Join Denis Magda, Product Manager at GridGain Systems, to hear about "Apache Ignite SQL Grid: Hot Blend of Traditional SQL and Swift Data Grid"
Visit GridGain at booth #206. And join Denis Magda, Product Manager at GridGain Systems, to learn how to boost performance 1,000x and scale to over 1 billion transactions per second with in-memory storage of hundreds of TBs of data for your SQL-based applications.
Join Mikhail Kuznetsov, for a session and panel discussions at Big Data 2017 in Moscow. 
The payments industry is being disrupted.  Mobile payments, instantaneous payments and embedded payments are changing the way consumers interact with their financial institutions.  The current payments paradigm requires financial services and fintech companies to upgrade their digital infrastructure to support processing transactions in a low-latency, scalable and secure manner. 
Service-oriented architectures (SOAs) are used to build flexible, independently deployable software systems. Microservices decompose services down to small pieces and use lightweight protocols to allow processes to communicate with each other over a network. This architectural approach is becoming increasingly popular, especially in high-availability systems. However, microservices-based solutions can become victims of their own success as greater and greater demands are placed on the systems that use them.
Nikita Ivanov, Founder & CTO at GridGain, will be presenting "Accelerate MySQL® for Demanding OLAP and OLTP Use Cases with Apache® Ignite™" at Percona Live 2017.
Learn how to use an in-memory computing platform like Apache® Ignite™ and GridGain to develop high performance and highly scalable mobile apps in this webinar.
The Insurance industry is undergoing significant changes.  In addition to economic and political uncertainty, insurers face investment income pressure from low interest rates. Coupled with this are the challenges of social and regulatory changes based on new customer expectations and government and employer policies.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is more than a bunch of sensors. Sensors and embedded devices gather data about the surrounding environment, but what you do with this data is what truly matters. A bunch of sensors won’t optimize your business. Collecting and analyzing the data that those sensors produce will.
Join Christos Erotocritou, Solutions Architect at GridGain Systems to learn about in-memory computing technologies and their advantages over traditional architectures. Matt will discuss use cases and reference architectures Apache Ignite.

The In-Memory Computing Summit North America, located in Silicon Valley, is the only industry-wide events which focuses on the full range of in-memory computing-related technologies and solutions. The conference is attended by technical decision makers, implementers and developers who make or influence purchasing decisions about in-memory computing, Big Data, Fast Data, IoT and HPC solutions. Hosted in South San Francisco, the event is a meeting place for in-memory computing experts from across North America and the Pacific Rim.
Past Events
Internet of Things (IoT) initiatives in financial services require greater performance and scalability than existing database architectures allow. This webinar will explain how to use the GridGain in-memory computing platform to overcome the performance and scalability limitations of existing data infrastructures in order to build successful IoT solutions in financial services.
Codemotion is one of the biggest tech conferences in Europe with an international network of 40.000 developers and 350 speakers and further partner conferences in Milan, Rome, Amsterdam, Dublin, Dubai, Tel-Aviv, Madrid and Berlin.
The financial technology (fintech) industry is exploding.  More than $35 billion has been invested in fintech companies since 2011, with investments doubling year after year. Fintech is now at the core of financial transactions, payments, lending, compliance, risk management, cybersecurity and more. While some fintech companies provide solutions to the financial services industry, many fintech companies now compete directly with traditional financial services companies – bringing big returns to their investors.
Stop by our booth # 924 to meet with the GridGain experts. Strata + Hadoop World is a 4-day immersion in the most challenging problems, intriguing use cases, and enticing opportunities in data today. Over a hundred of the most interesting people in data will take the stage to share their expertise and ideas. Don't miss Nikita Ivanov's presentation at the solutions showcase theatre. 
In-memory data grids bring exceptional performance and scalability to applications built on top of them. Applications can achieve a 1000x performance improvement and become automatically scalable and fault-tolerant thanks to the data grid architecture. However, the majority of data grid architectures sacrifice traditional SQL support, requiring application developers to completely rewrite their SQL-based code to support data grid specific APIs.
Join Christos Erotocritou, Principal Solutions Architect at GridGain Systems to discuss about "Misys Uses In-Memory Computing to Power the Next Generation of FinTech PaaS Solutions". Abstract:
Software and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) developers face a rapidly escalating set of challenges as they strive to make applications faster and more scalable. Software developers must meet the performance and scalability requirements dictated by unprecedented numbers of internal and external users. The challenges faced by SaaS developers are even more dramatic as they create high-performance, hyper-scale services that provide quick response times even under a growing volume of users and data. Software and SaaS are being revolutionized by in-memory computing.
The Apache® Ignite™ in-memory computing platform enables you to dramatically accelerate and scale out your existing data-intensive applications without ripping and replacing your existing databases. You insert Apache Ignite between your application and database layers to significantly accelerate your existing solution’s overall performance. The Apache Ignite Web Console, an interactive management and configuration tool for Apache Ignite, provides an automated way to accomplish the following:
Technology is changing traditional retail banking business models. Online banking and mobile banking are generating significantly more transactions than live teller-based banking.  This increase in automation is challenging banks to redesign their legacy systems to accommodate the increased quantity and complexity of transactions and analytics. Such changes require a fast, scalable, distributed and secure architecture. 
If your eCommerce initiatives are struggling to keep up with customer demand, then in-memory computing may be the solution you need to take performance and scale to the next level. Yesterday’s application and data architectures cannot achieve the speed and scale offered by in-memory computing. In addition, in-memory computing is more efficient than disk-based systems and can frequently be used to drive infrastructure consolidation projects and decrease costs.

Asset and wealth management continues to be one of the most attractive segments of the financial services industry, promising profitability and growth in a world of financial uncertainty.  However, most financial institutions are observing a shift in their client demographics.  The new client base demands different ways of placing and managing their financial holdings. As a result, technology is the single most important driving force in maintaining a competitive edge in this highly regulated industry. 
Bitcoin and blockchain technology has driven a lot of discussions around its possible use within the banking and financial services industries. According to analysts, 80% of top banks have launched experimental blockchain projects. While an estimated 15% of these banks will likely launch new blockchain-based services into the mass market in the next 12-24 months, an enormous investment in new technology may be required.
